Description:
Create a new Yast module for configuring IR receivers and remote
controls.
* irrecord support
* ir-kbd-i2c, ir-kbd-gpio support as in tv module already
* reading users' config to find out what buttons were defined (only if
/home partition left from last installation)
* support for lirc's options in /etc/sysconfig
See bug https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=381641

I really hope this accepted with 11.3.  It just took me a couple of
hours to realize that my old lirc config wouldn't work in 11.2 that I
used in 11.1.  The device was now /dev/lirc0 instead of /dev/lirc like
it was in 11.1.

I think this is pretty important.  LiRC is one of the last classes of
common hardware that cannot be configured using a GUI in openSUSE.

+ Configuring LIRC is quite complex and a simple YaST module cannot cover
+ all possibilities. So we should focus on the basic functionality here.
+ Here is my proposal:
+ Basic functionlity:
+ - read/write /etc/sysconfig/lirc settings - set lircd driver, module,
+ device...
+ - select a remote controller model from lirc-remote package
+ or start irrecord and create a new config for the user's controller
+ - enable/disable lirc system service
+ Editing user's config is very complex because ~/.lircrc (or
+ /etc/lircrc) can contain e.g.
+ include ~/.lircd/mplayer
+ Is that sufficient for most users? Please, comment.
